Remarks (internal):Stilbotulasnella differs from other tulasnellaceous fungi in having prominent conidiomata and in lacking an organized hymenium. Budding of the conidia and basidiospores and the septal pores without parenthesomes also separate this genus from other members of the family.

Description:Stilbotulasnella Oberwinkler and Bandoni, gen.nov.
Fructification consisting mainly of mononematous or synnematous conidiophores, the latter forming sporodochia or short-stalked synnemata; conidial masses slimy, whitish. Hyphae hyaline, thin walled, without clamps, branched, septate, with dolipore septa. Conidiophores branched or simple, the latter often consisting only of elongate conidiogenous cells; conidia blastic annelidic, hyaline, ellipsoid to slightly curved, germinating by budding or by germ tubes. Hymenium lacking, the basidia infrequent and scattered, most abundant at the bases of synnemata. Probasidia subglobose, tapered to a short stalk below, thin walled. Epibasidia at first subglobose, elongating and terminated by sterigmata at maturity. Basidiospores hyaline, smooth, germinating by repetition, by budding, or by gerrn tube.
